Going out to town....
17 October 2015 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

That's what the title means . At the time,the "Office Catholique Du Cinema" forbade the movie to their flock ,because of its (rather crude,admittedly) sexual innuendos ,and of its topless dancers.Much ado about nothing.

For this is a nothing movie,based on a screenplay written by morons : to get money to repair the Church steeple ,a stupid lump,in love with a baroness' daughter,has to go to Paris to find "artists " who would perform for a charity gala .

This is only a pretext to show the Parisian life time to an absolutely half-witted audience.

One can save ,at a pinch,Jean Carmet's portrayal of a stammering priest ,and two short appearances by Louis De Funès as a receptionist.

What's the point of restoring such a dud?
